Korean College Judo Development Program

A fellow judoka and friend here in Korea introduced me to one of the large college judo development programs in Busan – Dong-eui University (dong oo-ee).  It’s a prep for high schoolers and part of the curriculum for college students studying Physical Education.  It also showcases some top tier talent in the city.  I had a chance to work out with them and see what it was all about.  Let’s just say I’m in pain!!

I brought my video camera and got some good clips of the facility and the training and made the video below.  Class was an hour and a half and was straight up randori – both standing and on the ground.  These kids are seriously strong and talented.  I wasn’t in the best shape of my life because of time off during the holidays, and my body is paying the price.  Once I’m back in the groove though, I’ll look forward to going back there.

Enjoy the show!
